of the 1932 charter. it is good in the sense given the history of san francisco and, frankly, a lot of governmental problems we had historically, getting people to pay attention to city government has been very important. we had 1901 to 1907 a group called roof ring, they described the 18 supervisors then on the board as, quote, so corrupt they would eat the paint off the walls. that's the reason why we want people to pay attention to their city government. frankly, new england city governments are the small ones and tall hall government is the best of all. we can't do that. but we can give people is exposure to city government, it avoids a lot of problems. we have had a lot of mistakes.

the program that created universal health coverage in san francisco. it's amazing. the problems we have had, we have had are people taking their children to the emergency rooms for primary care. and we're eliminating that through programs that make sure that everybody has health insurance. so yes, i agree with this. and i think it needs to be expanded and it's relatively cheap. and my entire public health career has been in prevention. and what happens is when people have health insurance and they are seeing a doctor on a regular basis or health care provider and getting preventative services, that saves us so much money in the end. and also, for these businesses that are having to pay, their employees will be healthier. so it's a win-win in every situation and we need to really expand and i agree with this program. absolutely. thank you, chris for the question. >> thank you. >> i just wanted to add that i have been in a toothpaste commercial, crest toothpaste commercial, as a matter of fact and because of having dental services since i was a kid through access to health care is
selby. commissioners who voted against the plan, said that it gave san francisco a benefit that other regions in the south bay and east bay would not share. would you support san francisco using city taxpayer dollars to pay mtc for the cost of providing free muni service to young people in san francisco? in other words, if mtc isn't willing to do it on its own, should the city be paying more money into mtc to get the service out of mtc? >> as a last resort. that would be certainly the last way of funding it that i would look at. there is a continuity problem between the different transportation agencies that make it a little bit unworkable. at this present time i think one of the ways to deal with the issue is to see if the nuts and bolts of it can be tweaked a little bit to make it into a workable solution. maybe that may take a little bit more time, but i don't think as a sort of knee-jerk reaction we need to put the burden on taxpayers. with that being said it's vitally important for people to get around and especially those who can't afford and if you are a young person, i think

with the san francisco green party and local grassroots organization, our city. i think it is -- i think you are using a careful approach, that is good. i would also speak to the gold star side of the equation that -- keep in mind the reason the board ended up adopting this with amendments that changed it is that there was a massive effort by what we can call our opposition in the energy game, pg&e, to really shake the trees. so it wasn't as much as you as commissioners sent something half-baked but something that was pretty well-baked. it got hammered. we were forced to make amendments to respond to that hammering. with that said some of those amendments are positive. . >> will want be happy with that at all because that will put us in that same territory where it's an opt in even though it's legally not an opt in and hard enough to get customers in at the beginning if we're making that aggressive and how they respond. we want to do good study work and learn about them and need them excited about it but we need the incumbency factor and this is where you're in and do they want to stay in a
here in san francisco is a major cash cow for local government. they raise close to $200 million in revenue from parking here and the variable meters in my opinion is just another gimmick. it parks close to $6 an hour to park at a meter on any given day it's ridiculous. i am opposed to the variable rate meters and would take the residential permit one step further and allow those people to be allowed to use the parking permits to park on meters in shopping areas so i would propose that i am definitely opposed to send meters and saturday meters. it's a deterrent to patronizing small business. >> okay. the resulting economy has resulted in internet base for short term rentals and many of the rentals are illegal and the hotel tax is not collected. should the city legalize some or all of the arrangements and collect a hotel tax and we will begin with you -- i will be glad to repeat the question. >> i honestly don't know how you would enforce a law like that. of course everyone should pay their fair share but i don't know how you could enforce that. i believe we should standardize th

support the reinstatement of ross mirkarimi. i think that many people in san francisco understand the differences that this matter brings. eliana lopez is not someone who wanted help, who needed help, who needed the intervention of police departments. she can stand up for herself, every day. and she has a supporting husband who cares for her. she does not need the intervention. that is not for one moment to say that i believe that domestic violence is acceptable, and that is not for one moment ever to criticize the community that protect people who need it. i hopew"v$ that you members of e board of supervisors can be equally brave in-t" defending y rights as a voter to elect representatives who will serve my city. and i hope that you will also own lives when they are competent and powerful to do so.0z-sç @&c @&c"p%thank . >> president chiu: thank you. thank you. nextj[,z speaker. >> good evening, supervisors. and thank you for yourgp8u exceptional attention tonight. this is kind of a historicxb/m session. and thank you. my nameu)2
